You may reduce or cancel the amount of your Federal Direct Stafford or GPLUS Loan(s) at no cost until you have Federal Direct Stafford or GPLUS proceeds credited to your Tuition Account.

1. Name and SAIC ID Number

You are strongly advised to meet with your SAIC Student Financial Services advisor at the time that you submit your loan reduction or cancelation request to the SAIC Student Financial Services office.

Due to federal regulations, SAIC Student Financial Services may not be able to reinstate, at some later date, a Federal Direct loan that has been reduced or canceled.
